  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk, divided
  • 1 envelope (7 grams) unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup thawed, frozen whipped topping
  • 3 3 to 4 drops red food coloring (optional)
  • 1 (6 oz.) prepared 9-inch shortbread crumb crust
  • Green food coloring
  • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 24 (about 1/2 cup) jelly beans

Directions

PLACE strawberries, sugar and 1/2 cup evaporated milk in blender or food processor; cover. Puree for 20 seconds or until smooth.

HEAT remaining 1 cup evaporated milk in small saucepan over medium heat until simmering. Remove from heat. Sprinkle gelatin over milk mixture; stir until completely dissolved. Whisk in strawberry mixture; pour into a medium bowl. Refrigerate uncovered for 20 minutes or until cool to touch. Gently whisk in whipped topping and red food coloring to color desired. Pour mixture into crust.
